Discuss this Rant at the Frostbite Falls Table Inside the Diner



 



Last week's Fireside Rant ©Compounding Conflagrations of Collapse did remarkably well in its first week on the air (or in this case over fiber-optic cables), particularly since I haven't done any Audio Rants in quite some time.  You tend to lose audience if you don't keep the content running regularly, but the numbers for the first week are so far very good on that Rant at 193 Listens.



For this week, I'm ranting on our sitting POTUS Donalditry Trumpovetsky and his International Diplomacy ineptness, rising Fascism in the Western Industrialized Nations, and Right Wing internet Trolls who infest the commentariat of a variety websites.  The spin down of Collapse continues to accelerate here as 2018 comes to a close, and I don't expect things to improve in 2019.  It brings out the Scum of the Earth in the commentariat, and this can be a real problem as time goes by.  It plays havoc with the idea you can both have "Free Speech" and a decent and intelligent conversation at the same time.  Anyone who watched the Commentariat on Zero Hedge deteriorate over the years knows what I am talking about.



As a note for new Listeners, I'm doing my new Rants now on the Diner YouTube Channel, where you can also find the many Collapse Cafe discussions held with a variety of Collapse Pundits and other interesting and thought provoking people over the years.  Many other Rants and Interviews can be found on the Diner Soundcloud Channel as well.



For those interested in a Transcript of this rant, CONTACT me on the Diner and I will send you one.  I'm not generally publishing transcripts of my rants, I think they lose too much in the transition from voice to text.  They need to be listened to to get the full flavor.  However, there are Deaf People out there, so I will provide the transcripts on request.

I have found the best source of cheap fuel for my candles!🕯️  Crisco Vegetable Shortening!  :icon_sunny:

This shit comes in really cheap, less than $1/lb not even ON SALE.  I mix it with some Bacon Fat and some Beeswax and I get a good consistency and good burning characteristics for my candles🕯️.  I can't match that price new even with motor oil!  If you buy paraffin and other candle making supplies from the hobby stores you get totally ripped off.  Food products that are mass produced come in WAY cheaper, and for the most part burn just as good.

I can get my candle🕯️ price down now to 0.04 for 4 hours, or 0.01/hr.  Cheaper if I get a hold of used cooking oil or motor oil.  I need to start raising Bees because they fucking charge you through the nose for beeswax. ::)  Beeswax isn't essential, but it does stiffen things up for a better looking candle🕯️.

I haven't had the energy the last couple of days to get out to SaVANnah and run the Heating tests, but I am going to try to work up the energy today.  I am really curious how many Candles🕯️ I will need to heat the cabin to a comfortable temperature.  I am betting it will take around 10.

Let's see. Ten open flames in a poorly ventilated, airtight space, within a couple of feet of a 40 gallon gas tank. What could possibly go wrong?
What makes the desert beautiful is that somewhere it hides a well.

Your engine is within a couple of feet of the gas tank, burning constantly and your vehicle doesn't explode in flames.

I have burned my lanterns in the cabin of SaVANnah and no explosion, no suffocation either.  I will be running a CO detector and I of course have a fire extinguisher at the ready.  That of course is if I can work up the energy to run these tests.  Last 2 days very low energy to even go outside much less set up the experiment.

I am a Pyro 🔥 Professional.  :icon_sunny:  No worries. Trust me.  lol.
